Between 1995 and 1996, several provisional measures were issued in order to regulate the supply of sugarcane and ethanol to the market. According to those measures, the crop plans would still be devised by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism (MICT), with the objective of controlling the production of sugar and ethanol. The MICT was responsible for setting the production levels for sugar and ethanol commensurate with the quantity needed to supply the markets in the south-central and northeastern regions, as well as to replenish the stockpiles.
